About Our Chess Club

Tammer-Shakki is the biggest chess club in Tampere and one of the largest in whole of Finland. Tammer-Shakki was formed in 2005 when three local chess clubs joined forces and decided to continue under one name. We have over 100 members, from beginners to international masters.

Tammer-Shakki won the Finnish Team Championship in 2007 and was 2nd in 2008. In the Fall 2007 Tammer-Shakki participated in European Team Championship and will do so again this year. Our members include many Finnish Chess Champions (GM Yrjö Rantanen -78 and -86, IM Veijo Mäki -82 and -90, IM Mika Karttunen 2002, 2006 and 2007, IM Heikki Lehtinen 2003 and 2004) and one of the five Finnish Grand Masters (GM Yrjö Rantanen)

Club Evenings

Club evenings are held on Monday evenings at the Etappi (Vuolteenkatu 11). Tournaments start at about 6:00 pm, it is advisable to come a bit sooner so that the pairings can be made in time. Games usually end around 9 pm - 9:30 pm.

Monthly program for the club evenings:

Playing in club tournaments is free if not otherwise announced. The games are unofficial but club keeps an own rating list, everyone who has played in one or more club evenings gets a club rating.

Well come everyone interested in chess!

Junior Evenings

Youth chess evenings are held on Tuesday evenings at 5pm - 6:30pm in Pyynikin palloiluhalli.

Junior evenings will continue again in September 2008. New members are more than well come!
